Minimally Invasive Lumbar Decompression

MILD is a quick outpatient procedure, performed through a tiny incision (about the size of a baby aspirin), requiring no general anesthesia or stitches. MILD is an FDA-cleared procedure that has been performed safely on thousands of patients.

Here’s how the procedure works:

  • Specialized tools are inserted through a tiny incision in your back.
  • This removes small pieces of bone and excess ligament that cause the narrowing of the canal.
  • Some doctors have described treating LSS as being similar to “removing a kink in a drinking straw”.
  • An imaging machine is used to help guide your physician through the procedure.
  • Restoration of space in the spinal canal decreases the compression of the nerves.
  • This reduces pain and restores mobility.
